The world’s biggest rubbish dump: The Oceans!

by Dark Knight

Unofficial the worlds biggest rubbish dump is the oceans. While rubbish trucks don’t dump rubbish in it, it still ends up with tonnes of rubbish it. Surely this means it is a rubbish dump. We all know that rubbish goes to the dump, and since the ocean has many thousands of loads of rubbish in it, it must be a rubbish dump!

It is easy to dump the rubbish in the ocean, or in a stream that flows to the ocean and it is free. Sure this is the best thing about dumping rubbish in the oceans, it is free, no charge. Sometimes the rubbish does not make it to the ocean and sometimes ends up on beaches. This is not on, rubbish is for the tip, which is the ocean, get your act together.

Never mind the poor fish, or the dolphin, who cares about them. Not to mention the whale or other ocean life. As we see there is a cost, as these creatures suffer at out expense, they suffer and die…. Who cares… in a every increase uncaring would…

"Our ocean is sick, and our actions have made it so. We simply cannot continue to put our trash in the ocean. The evidence turns up every day in dead and injured marine life, littered beaches that discourage tourists, and choked ocean ecosystems," said Vikki Spruill, president and CEO of Ocean Conservancy.


Well I know that the Good people here at SV care, and others too.

Last year on 23rd International Coastal Cleanup Nearly 400,000 volunteers around the world Collected trash from beaches and waterways. The report is just in on the clean up!

Volunteers removed nearly seven million (6.8 million) pounds of debris, from 6,485 sites in 104 countries and 42 U.S. states and the District of Columbia with a common mission of improving the health of the ocean.
